Big Tigger, the Official DJ and in game host for the Washington Wizards, has earned a name for  himself as one of radio and television’s most distinctive personalities. His Djing and hosting talents keep him in demand for  celebrities from Shaquille O’Neal to Michael Jordan, as well as corporate entities such as Nike and Macy’s. He reaches millions of fans weekly as the host of his internationally syndicated countdown show, “Live In The Den With Big Tigger”, as well as his Emmy nominated entertainment TV program on DC’s CW50 Network, “Direct Access with Big Tigger”.

Well-known for his silky smooth tenor, Big Tigger entered the television scene performing voiceovers for  BET in 1997, while still working the radio circuit. Within 2 years, fans were watching him on-camera, on Rap City’s “Hip Hop News” segment. From there, he swiftly advanced to become the co-host in its 10th season. Internal changes at BET led to the reform of Rap City into “Rap City: Tha Bassment”. As host, Big Tigger was a prime factor in
the show’s success as the longest-running nationally televised hip-hop show.  After a 6 year run Rap City: Tha Bassment, which featured the hottest DJs and artists in hip-hop, plus the very popular “Booth” segment allowing the multi-faceted veejay to showcase his freestyle talents, aired its final program on January 17,  2005. From there he would go on to host “BET Style” and the ever popular “106 & Park” on BET from 2005 – 2007 as well as numerous special projects including “The Blueprint” and “Spring Bling”. He served as the Co-host and “Voice” of the 2011 Soul Train Awards alongside Cedric “The Entertainer” and currently still performs a variety of hosting duties during the annual BET Awards.

A natural in front of the camera, Big Tigger has been chosen for commercial and television roles;  highlights include a national Reebok commercial, a guest star appearance on The Dave Chappelle Show, and recently serving as an entertainment insider for NBC Washington’s News 4 at 4.

In May 2003, Big Tigger began his own three-hour syndicated radio show entitled “Live in the Den with Big Tigger.” The weekly countdown show  features today’s hottest artists, interviews and entertainment news. Syndicated by Premiere Radio Network, Live in the Den currently can be heard in 67 US markets (including seven of the ten largest markets) and 3 countries. This well-spoken broadcast veteran defines the who, what, when, where and
how of today’s and yesterdays culture by providing fans with the hottest music, and interviews of multi-platinum hip-hop and R&B artists, including Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Lil’  Wayne, Beyonce, Maxwell, Drake, and Ne-Yo.

As DJing is one of this Bronx, NY native’s 1st loves, Big Tigger has once again embraced that part of his life now as the 5 year resident DJ for the Washington Wizards, Official CirocBoyz DJ, and member of the Monster DJs. Some of his more notable Dj credits include:

*The 2012 World Basketball Festival in Washington DC July 2012

Big Tigger also began offering FREE Podcast Mixes available on iTunes at BT RADIO and on Podomatic.com beginning in December 2011. To date, he has accumulated nearly 1.8 MILLION downloads of those mixes to date. (12/1/12)

Out of his genuine  concern for the community and youth, Big Tigger organized The Street Corner Foundation (SCF),  a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness and prevention of HIV/AIDS. Complimenting a variety of testing initiatives, SCF and Big Tigger launched an annual three-day charity event in Washington, DC in 2002.  Attended by celebrities from the worlds of music, sports and film/television, the weekend highlights include:
HIV/AIDS Testing Program, Youth Sports Clinic, Private Welcome Reception & Silent Auction,
HIV/AIDS Panel Discussion, Sponsors Luncheon, and All Star Celebrity Basketball Game. Big
Tigger’s 9th Annual Celebrity Classic, was last held in Washington, DC on June 10-
13, 2010.

During Big Tigger’s downtime, he enjoys motorcycle riding, cars, gadgets, playing basketball, softball, football, and participating in charitable events.

Whether he’s on the radio or  television, emceeing, DJing or hosting, Big Tigger leaves a lasting impression in the minds of millions of fans.
